From interviewing vendors to resolving disagreements, this week is all about great communication. Find out what the stars have in store for you and your wedding plans, courtesy of April Elliott Kent, author of Astrological Transits. Below, her horoscopes for the week ahead.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
A demanding boss, additional duties at work, plus a million wedding details all compete for your attention this week. Keep your main focus on your partner though, who isn't sleeping well and may be overlooking some important matters. You both could use some pampering and relaxation. Why not schedule a couples massages?
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You're organized and reliable but not always interested in the specifics. This week's New Moon steers your focus toward attending to details, at the same time, your mind is on having fun. Combine the two by focusing on the particulars of your reception and related parties. Enlist the help of a music-savvy friend to find the perfect band or cook up a playlist.
__Gemini (May 21 - June 20) __
A sensitive family member may be feeling a bit ignored so try to spend a little extra time with them. Ask for a helping hand with some of the more enjoyable wedding planning stuff. For instance, this week's New Moon is a good time to hire a florist or audition a band for the reception, however your favorite choices may be higher priced than you'd hoped.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This is a strong communication week for you, great for resolving disagreements, following up on reservations and selecting or sending out wedding invitations. Home, family and food (always top topics for Cancer) are emphasized by this week's New Moon. Gather up your mother, sisters, cousins and best friend to do some cake (and wine!) tasting. Good financial news for your partner may mean it's time to start shopping for houses too.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
It's a good week for you to hire vendors; the people you pick will be obsessed with detail and save you money in the long run. Leo is always generous, but right now it's better to pay by check than to rely on credit. Luckily, this week's New Moon indicates a good time to negotiate for what you want so don't be afraid to use your considerable charm to wheedle deals and discounts.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You're extremely capable and currently filled with unstoppable energy and creative vitality. Just be careful not to overwhelm your partner, who might prefer to move at a less structured pace. Do your best to stay grounded, as all that nervous energy could leave you burned out. Immerse yourself in soothing, enjoyable wedding tasks, like deciding on flowers, colors and gifts for the wedding party.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The pressure is on as you try to appease others and be sensitive to their needs. No one wants to be a bridezilla, however, this week's New Moon in your sign encourages you to focus a bit on getting what you need and speaking up for yourself in a way that is much more direct than your typical style. Be sure to carve out some alone time to recharge your batteries because you've got a lot on your mind right now.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You're a loyal friend, and this week those friendships require a ton of your attention. The New Moon is a great reminder to also spend some time by yourself though, resting and contemplating all the huge changes happening in your life, particularly on Wednesday and Thursday.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
There have been positive forces at work in your career this month, and this week the hard work you've been putting in seems ready to pay off. It's a good week to attend a bridal fair or otherwise cast a net for professionals to help with your big day, in particular a wedding planner and a videographer. Your intuition is especially strong on Friday and Saturday so trust your gut.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
This week's New Moon is one of the best of the year for you professionally. It also points to the need to pay attention to parents, your future in-laws predominately. Your way with words and imagination are at an all time high right now. Planning to pen your own vows for your ceremony? This would be a great time to knock them out. Faraway places call to you as well so start brainstorming honeymoon destinations.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You may have been struggling to get a handle on your finances for a while now, and this is an excellent week to get serious about your wedding budget and tracking expenses. The New Moon highlights tasks related to your actual wedding ceremony: the format of the service, choices of readings or scripture and touches of cultural or religious significance you'd like to include.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
If your close friends haven't had a chance to get to know your partner well, set up a dinner party this week to let everyone get acquainted. For you, this week's New Moon highlights matters of honesty and trust so it may be time for some important conversations, especially about joint finances or prenuptial agreements.
